Description Gerd Hoffmann 2012-06-04 07:28:36 EDT
Description of problem:
See $subject

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Actual results:
loader segfaults

Expected results:
loader fetches image

Additional info:

booting via pxelinux, menu entry:

label .3
  menu label mirror: RHEL6.3-20120523.1 Server (x86_64)
  kernel http://spunk.home.kraxel.org/mirror/rhel/6/RHEL6.3-20120523.1/6/Server/x86_64/os/images/pxeboot/vmlinuz method=http://spunk.home.kraxel.org/mirror/rhel/6/RHEL6.3-20120523.1/6/Server/x86_64/os
  initrd http://spunk.home.kraxel.org/mirror/rhel/6/RHEL6.3-20120523.1/6/Server/x86_64/os/images/pxeboot/initrd.img

spunk.home.kraxel.org has both A and AAAA records, apache serves both ipv4 and ipv6 [same content].

Disabling the ipv6 checkbox in the network setup dialog makes the segfault go away.

Comment 4 RHEL Product and Program Management 2012-07-10 01:50:45 EDT
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Comment 5 David Cantrell 2012-07-10 11:38:03 EDT
It is unlikely we will implement this in RHEL-6.  Setting devel_ack-.  Please follow up with us on the Fedora side so we can make sure updates.img fetching over IPv6 works there (it may already).
Comment 6 RHEL Product and Program Management 2012-07-10 11:55:15 EDT
Development Management has reviewed and declined this request.
You may appeal this decision by reopening this request.
Comment 7 RHEL Product and Program Management 2012-07-10 19:04:45 EDT
This request was erroneously removed from consideration in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4, which is currently under development.  This request will be evaluated for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4.
